The appearance of your Documents helps to convey their message. We demonstrate how to develop Professional-looking Documents appropriate to their Contents. We work through Bulleted and Numbered Lists and experiment with Creating and Adding Quick Styles in order to change the look of individual words. Text Formatting also includes Alignment and the use of Tabs, Spacing, Borders and Shading as well as adding Themes to Documents.
Unit 4: Simple Graphical Elements
Some Documents might benefit from the addition of Graphic Elements, either to reinforce their concepts or to make them more attention grabbing or visually appealing. We demonstrate how to incorporate and Insert different types of Graphical Elements to make this all possible.
Unit 5: Printing and Page Setup for Printing
Before hitting the Print button it is vital that you check that the pages are efficiently laid out and that there are no Formatting problems, such as a heading that prints on a separate page from its text. We demonstrate the Tools that word offers for Finalizing a Document and ensuring that the end product of all your hard work contains no traces of personal or confidential information.
